I have made this same cake but instead of the frosting I used low fat whipped cream.

Low-Fat Pumpkin Spice Cake

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 16 slices

Serving Size: 1 slice
Ingredients

For the cake:
1 box spice cake mix
1 16oz can pure pumpkin puree
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
For the icing:
1 8oz pkg. low-fat cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup icing sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 - 4 Tbsp skim milk

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray two 9-inch cake pans with olive oil and line the bottoms of the cake pans with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and pumpkin. Divide mixture evenly among the 2 cake pans. Bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. DO NOT OVER-BAKE or else cake won't be as moist! Remove pans from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pans and let cool completely before frosting.

To make the icing, in a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, and vanilla extract. To make a thinner icing, slowly add in some milk, 1 Tbsp at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

Place one cake layer on a plate. Spread 1/2 the icing on top. Top with the other cake layer and spread the remaining icing on top.

Sprinkle with chopped walnuts if using.

To make this cake even lower in fat, you could use non-fat Cool Whip as an icing instead of the cream cheese...but I highly recommend the cream cheese!

Hi all!

My birthday is coming up soon and instead of buying a sugar filled cake I would like to bake my own with healthier ingredients. If anyone can help out that would be great. I like pumpkin spice if its possible to make a healthy version of a pumpkin spice cake or mini muffins. Just a few for me, the kids and hubby.

Thanks in advance emoticon
